(b. 1838; d. 1886)
One of the greatest of U.S. architects, most active in New England and the Midwest, especially in the areas of Boston and Chicago, Henry Hobson Richardson was born in Louisiana. He entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1860, but didn't finish normally as family finances deteriorated during the U.S. Civil War, and he returned to the U.S. in 1865.
Richardson developed a powerful personal style, related to the Romanesque of southern France, producing most of his larger buildings with strong, clear, simple rusticated masonry forms.
